When this woman hugged the distraught blind dog who had been abandoned by his owner in the dump, he couldn’t hold back his tears.

Chuckie and Sidewalk Specials met on Outreach in De Doorns. His owner indicated that the dog had gone blind and that keeping him safe at the dump was getting increasingly difficult, so he wished to relinquish him. He missed his dog, but he knew it was better that he was secure.

Chuckie’s veterinarian confirmed that he is fully blind in his left eye and half seeing in his right, though this may improve when his tick bite fever decreases.

Chuckie is around four years old and likes to go on walks (he follows your shadow/sound quite well and enjoys adventures). He gets along with other dogs, isn’t afraid of youngsters, and completely ignores cats!
